November 2022 | 6 Bottle Club
Welcome to the November 6 Bottle Club from MYSA Natural Wine!
A note from our founder:
We are in full-blown cozy MYSA season! With that in mind we have all kinds of wines to enjoy by the fire and/or with friends and family during all of the upcoming holidays. If you're doing Friends/Thanksgiving I'd specifically set aside the Super Remi, Anjou Blanc and Shiraz for the occasion! Don't sleep on the Ocho, as it's a GREAT time to drink this Georgian orange or Albarino from Old Westminster. You may have had their piquettes, but their regular wines are *chefs kiss* and show a more serious side of our fav MD producer.

Rémi makes wines in a classic carbonic style, using whole bunches, which are carefully sorted to avoid broken grapes or rot. He adds some carbon dioxide gas to protect the grapes at the beginning of fermentation and does not use any temperature control. He avoids foot stomping the grapes unless he sees some volatility starting to creep in. His goal is to have as little juice in the tank as possible. He also performs routine analysis to see how the yeast is performing and whether or not there is any volatility. Remi makes all his wines with the same method, thus we can really see and taste the differences between the sites, with minor differences in the elevage of each cuvée. He tastes each cuvée before bottling and may decide to add between zero and 2 mg of sulfur, depending on how stable he judges the wine to be. - Jenny and Francois

About Old Westminster
The Baker family, established in 1985, didn’t always know they would spend their lives making wine together. Jay & Virginia, founders of the family, always dreamed of working with their children and preserving their farm. In 2008, all three of their children – Drew, Lisa and Ashli – were away at college, and they found themselves empty nesters. It was time to either put their land to work, or move on. Upon discovering that grapevines have an affinity for rocky soil, elevation, abundant sunshine and a steady year-round breeze – all characteristics of their land – the family explored the idea of planting a vineyard and starting a winery together.

On our labels, you see precious animals of Georgians fauna that are at risk of extinction. While drinking our wine made in an archaic way and looking at these mysterious animals you wonder who you are and why you are here. The wine is made in a kvevri (a pitcher) according to the ancient Georgian traditional method, with the involvement of solely natural yeasts in the fermentation. - Ocho Wine

About Pascal Biotteau
Combining the fresh acidity of the “Anjou Blanc’s” limestone with the flinty, mouth-coating richness of the “Anjou Noir,” the estate’s classic style offers a beautiful composite picture of Anjou as a whole, with honeyed notes of apricot giving way to a tangy mineral finish. The sort of classic “bistro wine” wine that you’d dream of drinking on a warm summer evening in Paris, it’s fantastic for fresh goat-cheese salads, fish in cream sauce, or even herb-roasted pork or chicken. Just don’t serve it too cold, according to Mary, to avoid masking its full depth and aromatic complexity. - Mary Taylor Wine
